Gap Year Programme

This is a course designed to improve your German and prepare you for the ski or snowboard instructors' exams.  Here's what to expect!

  1. Intensive German tuition (09:00 to 12:15 = 4 x 45 min. lessons Monday to Thursday for a minimum of 3 people in a class.  2 people: 3 lessons. 1 person: 2 lessons) including all lesson materials, at the Deutsch-Institut Tirol, plus the free time programme on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Although voluntary, these parts of the programme are important for your total immersion experience, as you have to use the German you’ve learned, in authentic situations.
  2. Accommodation:  DIT helps you to reserve a room with breakfast in a neary pension.
  3. Ski instructor's training on the glacier by qualified instructors of Kaprun Ski Academy  who’ve passed the exam themselves.
